Saratoga County Soldiers in War of 1812

 

            Sources for military service records of War of 1812 soldiers from New York are notoriously difficult to find.   When we are fortunate to find such sources we will include them here.

            Jan Jordan transcribed the following from "State of Vermont ROSTER of SOLDIERS in the WAR of 1812-14," prepared and published under the direction of Herbert T. Johnson, the Adjutant General, 1933.  [from Heritage Hunters Newsletter Oct/Nov 2003]

Saratoga County War of 1812 Pensioners

 

This information is extracted from:

"Ancestry.com's War of 1812 Pension Application Files Index, 1812-1815 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2010. Original data: War of 1812 Pension Applications. Washington D.C.: National Archives. NARA Microfilm Publication M313, 102 rolls. Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Record Group Number 15."

 

Pensions were applied for and granted to War of 1812 veterans or their survivors.  The document images appearing on Ancestry.com may contain the serviceman's name, wives or widow's names, residence places at various times, a description of the term of service and unit, date of marriage (probably the date of the latest marriage) and the date of death of the serviceman and his wife/widow.  Rarely are all these blanks completed:  some cards are blank except for names and service record.  Most cards contain one or more file numbers which may lead the reader to more information.

 

The names below were found by searching for the keyword "Saratoga."  Without a doubt, more Saratoga County 1812 War pensioners' cards exist in the Record Group, although without a specific reference to a place in Saratoga County.  The date of death in the table below is that of the soldier.
